To make the sauce, heat some oil in a medium hot pan and add the garlic. Then add gochujang, chilli flakes, Korean BBQ sauce and mix it together well.

Next add the honey, give it a quick stir and add salt and pepper to taste.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper before soaking it in the buttermilk for five minutes. Add the flour to a separate bowl.

Once the chicken has soaked, remove it from the buttermilk and coat each piece in the flour.

Heat some more oil in a frying pan and shallow fry the chicken until it’s cooked through.

Once cooked, toss it in the sauce and serve with a garnish of chopped chives and sesame seeds.
